Pleaded not guilty

Ebit Lew was arrested by police after multiple reports were lodged against him for allegedly sexually harassing a woman between March and July last year.

He pleaded not guilty after he was charged in February, adding that it was an effort to tarnish his reputation and “a test from God”.
